During an avalanche exercise Saturday, Jeff Avants (left) and Philip Loftus use a pinpoint beacon search to locate one victim (a buried dummy) while scanning the ‘avalanche’ debris field for the other. The group, taking an avalanche safety class sponsored by Pinedale Snow Explorers, successfully located two avalanche dummy ‘victims’ in less than 15 minutes, saving both.
